Miley Cyrus Grows Up on New Album “Breakout”

28 Jun

Miley Cyrus is a superstar to millions of teens around the world as Hannah Montana, but it’s a more grown-up Cyrus that emerges on her new album, Breakout. The set is due July 22 via Hollywood; first single “7 Thing” rockets 70-10 this week on the Billboard Hot 100.

“It’s grown-up,” Cyrus tells Billboard in an exclusive interview. “I wrote all the songs except two. My last one, Meet Miley Cyrus, was more just meeting me, finding out who I am, and here it’s more getting in depth of what’s been going on in my life in the past year.”

Cyrus pushed to write the songs herself this time around, saying that, “No matter how long what I’m doing here lasts, I want to be a songwriter for the rest of my life. I love it and it’s my escape. I just hope this record showcases that — more than anything — I’m a writer.”

The artist found herself in a media firestorm earlier this year when a photo of her bare shoulder, entwined in a bed sheet, appeared in Vanity Fair.

“I was embarrassed,” she says in her rapid, self-assured clip, “but also it’s like, every career thing that I do can’t be perfect, and sometimes my decisions are wrong. I think that just makes me even more relatable. I don’t think people will look at me any differently because they’re like, ‘You know what, I’m going to do stupid stuff too, and I’m going to make mistakes, and that’s fine.’ It still hurts when I think about it — but you know what, it doesn’t mean that you can’t move on.”

Cyrus is in the midst of filming the third season of her hit Disney show Hannah Montana, as well as The Hannah Montana Movie in Tennessee. Her team is also plotting a successor to her runaway smash 2007 concert tour, which drew nearly 1 million fans.

“We’re weighing the pros and cons of having her do multiple nights in one big city versus her doing one-night shows in a number of smaller markets,” says Chip McLean, senior VP of Buena Vista Concerts for Disney Music Group. “Since she is someone who appeals to families, we can’t just have her play the top 15 markets. Families won’t be able to afford to make the trip, buy the tickets and pay for the hotel if we did that.”

    She is just bitter that she got dumped on her new album and that she realized she is a slut. I am not one to usually judge because of what i’ve seen, she may have been well rounded, but she is the one exception!

    Ok firstly I’d like to say I think people are being too hard on Miley. I actually think that it must be really hard for her to be a ‘real’ singer after Hannah Montana. Because no one takes her seriously, they all say “Oh yeah Miley Cyrus, that Hannah Montana Chick”. Poor Girl. 😦

  4. Wouldn't you like to know? July 1, 2008 at 1:36 am #

    Yeah let’s say us other people do stupid stuff too.

    I’m sorry…do you see us posing “nude” wrapped in a sheet for a magazine?

    I think not.


    Get over yourself.

    miley cyrus is suppperrtalented. stop saying no one likes her because obviously she wouldn’t be working as hard as she is for nothinng. you people think your much more talented then her? well i dont see you on the big screen. miley has a pure voice and works hard to put out new music. im looking forward to her new album. i knew about her song 7 things when it first came out and i loveeed it! mileys songs really touch how we feel in song. some of her songs have made me realize how i really feel about relationship and life. shes also a great actress.! i am crazzzzyy for hannah montana! its hiliariouus 😀
    &&so what. she made a mistake. who doesnt?! we always hear about crazy people doing stupid stuff. like groups of people getting pregnant or committing suicide or something retarred. those pictures she posted wern’t even nude. omg! i saw some of themmm; she was just being a teenager and takking pictures. and why the hell is everyone making a big deal about itt. its her life, let her live it the way she want to. you shouldn’t butting into her life. especially not go through her pictures. wtf.

    i know miley cyrus will become one of the biggest stars there is!
    you stupid people will realize that you only hate her because you only wish you could become as famous and talented as her!

    The Incredible feelings that come out of your songs are not terrible, in any notion. teenagers. They do rapidly crazy things and never take time to think what of their actions and thier effects, and somtimes there are close people, say BFFs that are the influencers, you want to be friends but thier imature “tude” is totally rearanging who you are.
    Most people post here because they are Critics to only the music that they like, well if you were an artist,
    you were so excited over your songs to the point of laughter, not because of your fame or money, but you were happy for the sheer thought of the happiness this would bring to the listener, Whomever it may be.
    Then think about how many people will collapse to the rumors of something caused by Photos, words, or any other source of media, that create a metiphorical
    black ring around you.
    Yea Miley is a teen and an artist. Artists are a people whom express themselves through CREATIVITY
    Teens post pix of themselves on Myspace and other stuff, (im not saying thats a good thing) They follow the flow.
    Those few people who post things that they will never think about again for probably another 10 years that say suckish things, go and post somewhere else because this is not “Well What are your feverishly Angry Comments about an artist/teen who is trying to do her best in showbiz but is surrounded by a ring of darkness and rumors that hurt”.
    This much I know and Im not an EXTREME fanatic like some people. (not a bad thing)
    if your still so insecure of your self asteem then go read “Build your self Esteem”.
    And if you got a problem with that then

    i can not believe wat some people think about miley.
    she is gifted and could do without the judgment. everyone has made a mistake and u cant deny it. which means that stars like miley cyrus make mistakes. and we dont judge her because it is the right thing to do. its called empathy! so everyone that judges her really has no life.

    I cant wait to get miley’s album. its going to be the best! im sure theres more to come!


  10. hello July 6, 2008 at 1:59 am #

    miley you rock dont listen to any of these terrible things some peeps say i will always like you no matter what because we are all just who we are and life is so tough especially in hollywood

    all you people who are saying bad things about miley are idiots. i don’t even see the big deal about those vanity fair pictures. i bet if it was beyonce or ciara who had done those pictures everyone would be saying how sexy they were,but just because she’s on disney you idiots are calling her a you people see her sleeping around with anyone or making out with 3 guys in the same day like lindsay lohan? no. she’s not a slut and she is a very talented singer unlike some other disney stars out there. she wears way less clothes to the beach than she was wearing in those pictures andso do you people.stop making up stupid rumors about her and just let the girl live her life and continue to do what she wants. when she starts appearing nude and getting drunk and crazy at oarties-which will never happen- then you can call her a slut and bitch or whatever else you want. infact i’ll join you. so all you asses leave miley the hell alone!!!!

    i’ve always liked miley since she came out as a singer and actress in hannah montana i think she is really talented unlike some other disney channel stars and she is really really extremely good i think people should just leave her alone just because she has acctually been good and hasn’t done anything bad like other stars doesn’t mean you should wreck her life just so you can feel like you acctually feal good about something! miley totally rocks and she has alot going for her i think all of her ne songs on breakout rock too. i love her new song seven things is a total hit i love it! i’ve always wanted to meat miley and she is like my idol i will look up to her as long as she don’t turn out like a britney spears lol… well i sing all of her songs and always watch her show HM and love it! i hope one day soon i could get noticed but if i do i’ll never be as good as her! love ya miley and never change you rock girl!!!!!!!!!!! lol lylas

    i think haters are just jealous of her that’s one thing i can certify 100%

    you ask why? sure haters sing better and yet haters aren’t famous..

    keep on rockin’ miley! =]

    hey Miley lovers: marry her if you like her so much!

    Being jealous of Miley is like being jealous of someone with the stomach flu.

    miley luvrs are people who have NO taste in music or people for that matter. watch interviews with her! listen to her voice when she sings! if you still can’t hear her bratiness, then you are obviously blind beyond help.

    i don’t hate Miley, i just hate where she is on the popularity scale. she doesn’t deserve that spot, someone who has TALENT should take her place. Selena Gomez is an amazing singer and actress. Same with Demi Lovato. THEY deserve that spot.

    miley is a bad role model. she’s SO stupid, and with our economy slipping more and more each day, we need smart role models so kids can grow up mimicking a good one. she is NOT smart!

    Hey, just curious here: Am I the only one that notices that she crosses her arms more than once in EVERY SINGLE HANNAH MONTANA EPISODE!!!??!??!! oh boy, that annoys me.

    i hope she falls into obscurity soon.

    i think u people r stupid for judging her she is no different then u so she made a mistake u make then too i feel sorry for her look what she has too put up with. how would u feel if people judged u for your mistakes u people r jerks and dude and imon.i u guys r stupid and mean think about what u say before u say it that stuff is rude u make mistakes too seriously.

  18. taylor July 15, 2008 at 12:45 am #

    mileys a amazing artist. shes matured in her songs and i like her songs now better than the hannah montana ones. 7 things can relate to alot of people in relationships. i think you people are making to much of a big deal about the picture scandal. wow people makes mistakes get over it. if you had a big mistake you wouldnt want people herassing you for it.

    just shut up. shes not going to become brittany. her dad wouldnt let her do that anyways. plus shes like 15! shes my age. you guys are making a big deal about it and say oh i sing better blah blah!

    well if you fucking sing better go on damn idol. because obviously your jealous that shes famous!
    i mean theres you and theres her. shes FAMOUS she has millions of fans! you have like none? so stop trying to look good cause its just making you look more and more of a skanky ass jealous bitch.

    keep on the good work with the songs miley 🙂
    i like her new songs. there really good.
